Viking Siege Shafts
THE SIEGE CARBON FIBER PERFORMANCE SHAFT BY VIKING
Until now, the billiard industry has relied on a carbon fiber shaft construction process of wrapping thin sheets of resin pre-impregnated carbon fiber around a steel form and overlapping the individual sheets as the diameter and taper of the shaft varies. This process of overlapping the sheets leaves undesired variations in wall thickness and stiffness and introduces radial inconsistencies over the length of the shaft in addition to requiring a final sanding process to create a smooth, even surface. Viking is taking a step in an entirely different direction. The carbon fiber process used to create the Viking Siege Pure Performance Shaft allows the carbon fiber and resin to be wound on the shaft structure in a single, continuous process weaving the fiber and applying resin simultaneously. Because sheet overlaps have been eliminated with this process, the end result is a more uniform structure with increased radial consistency and a smooth, sealed, un-sanded outer surface that stays cleaner and glides smoothly across your skin.
